Syncing Gmail "Archive" (All Mail)

Postby kribor1 » Fri Jan 22, 2021 12:32 pm

Hi there,

In an upcoming effort to migrate some users from gmail - > zimbra I wanted to show how easy it is to get all your existing email via "External Account" and IMAP. First there were some issues with login, possibly very recently (since I didn't find any docs on it) gmail now requires 2-factor auth on gmail + a generated "app password" to allow signing in via IMAP. Great security feature, just badly documented and no proper error messages.

Now to the bigger problem which I hope is solvable. Anything in inbox, sent etc. and anything with a label is synced but other things that are "Archived" in "All Mail" folder in gmail are not synced and I'm wondering why and how to solve it? I know that the All Mail folder is shown in IMAP because A) It's enabled in gmail and B) I can see the folder when connecting to IMAP from Thunderbird.

Please help me out so I can convince more users to migrate :)
